As hard as you work, that is how deeply you should rest. Life requires constant effort to care for those you love; paying the bills, preparing meals, comforting, listening, encouraging, etc. If you want to sustain the ability to engage with the modern world and all its details, balance is an absolute necessity. This 5-day (mostly) silent retreat focusses on the meditation of doing not-doing, or simply being. This is a time to trust the intelligence of your body-mind and give it space to rejuvenate. The aim is simplicity. There will be relaxing guided meditations, easy walks in nature and time for discussion. Sometimes the best thing you can do is pause, breathe, rest and allow life's rhythms to refresh you.
